About the Book

The ‘Radio’ Handbook 1938

The paperback version of The ‘Radio’ Handbook 1938 advertised here is a true collector’s item for amateur radio operators.This is the fourth edition, first printing of this issue of only 30,000 copies printed at that time.

This particular copy of The Radio Handbook 1938 is in good shape for a book that is well over 78 years old. There is some wear evident on the covers and the spine has been taped with clear tape at one time to prevent further wear on it. The pages inside are in remarkably good shape as the publishers used high quality paper and an excellent print process. The pages are easy to read with no yellowing and all images are visible without fading.
